My life priorities have a very explicit order:
- Everything else
The above, of course, is idealistic versus realistic. Ask God. He will tell you.
Currently, the Everything Else is being occupied by amateur radio. I recently invested in Icom’s D-Star and have been, like a dictator drunk with power, allowed free reign into a world that is at least to me, endlessly fascinating.
Let me preface what I am about to say with this – using this technology outside of the scope for which it is licensed and governed in a federal violation. Ok, now, on to what is possible.
Like the Net, just about everything with regard to this digital mode is logged, tracked, and easily queried by the authorities. However, there are ways around that system of logging, mush like the Net as a whole.
Imagine what FREFOR could do with a global, digital, and encrypted radio net. Just imagine the possibilities. One could even envision the possibility of our very own Darknet.
As I go down the digital radio road, I will do my very best to elaborate on what I figure out what is possible. It will be up to you to determine the application and ultimately, the value.
